We all know what health is. It is the ability of a biological system to acquire, allocate, convert, distribute, and utilize energy sustainably. In its 1948 constitution, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined human health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Now, a question may arise, “So, what’s Healthstyle?” The answer to that is the way or the style through which we treat our health. For example, when sitting down do you sit upright or bend over on your elbows on a table? How about when eating? Do you sit in front of the TV holding a fork in one hand and your cell phone in the other? The style in which you conduct yourself from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to bed are your personal health style. At our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference Asia 2018 in Singapore August 30-31, we will highlight great thought leaders and innovators from all over the globe. The companies and their leaders speaking at the conference are listed below. Do not miss the chance to meet and listen to them in person and join us for #WTASIA18!

Bonbouton is a technology platform for preventive diabetic health care leveraging wearable sensors and connected software app. Their first product, a smart insole with a graphene sensing system passively monitors skin’s physiological signals to detect early signs of foot ulceration. The smart insoles sync with the mobile app to continuously monitor foot temperature to provide an early view of developing foot ulcers to enable earlier preventive treatment that can significantly reduce the cost of care and facilitate better patient outcomes. Bonbouton’s graphene oxide (GO) sensors deliver flexible, thin and comfortable solutions that detect a variety of pathophysiological developments – including fever, exhaustion and blister formation prior to diabetic foot ulcer development. Bonbouton is based in New York.
Linh Le, Founder & CEO of BonBouton will be speaking at our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference Asia 2018 in Singapore. Mr. Le will discuss, “Graphene-based wearable sensors: Application in Preventative Diabetics Healthcare.”

Doppel is a new breed of performance-enhancing wearable technology that can naturally make you feel more alert or relaxed. By rhythmically pulsing on the inside of your wrist, doppel harnesses our innate response to rhythm. We react to doppel’s pulse in a similar way to upbeat or downbeat music but with no noise or distraction. Different from traditional wearables that merely measure or monitor your body, the new doppel wristband can literally change your mood using your body’s natural response to rhythm. Doppel is based in London, England.
Nell Bennett, Design Director and Co-Founder of Doppel will be speaking at our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference Asia 2018 in Singapore. Nell will talk about “Designing Empathic Technology.”
